The Move to 430 N. Michigan: Drywall | Chicago Association of REALTORS®

We are on the move to the REALTOR® Building at 430 N. Michigan, with a projected move-in of December, 2016. Construction began in September, and we’ll be keeping you posted on our progress. Today, we’re talking drywall.

Our floorplan is really starting to take shape – thanks to our brand new walls!

430 N. Michigan Floorplan

Reception

This space was mostly framed out and dry walled from the beginning, but here’s a reminder of what it looks like:

MEMBER LOUNGE AND CONFERENCE ROOMS

You can really start to see where the main conference room will be, as well as the two smaller conference rooms. The banquets are also coming together!

Classrooms

These are really starting to take shape. Moveable walls will give us lots of options for these spaces, too.

And here’s a sneak peek at the view from the classrooms:

You may have noticed on the floorplan that we’ve designated spaces for students to talk on their phone, take tests or just have a break from the classroom. Here’s a look at what that area will look like:

Staff Workspaces

Oh, what a difference some lighting will make shortly!

We also built in a little area for a staff lounge, so that there’s a central break room to enjoy lunch or a mid-afternoon coffee break. Here’s what that looks like now, and what it will look like when completed.
